Häagen-Dazs Yuzu Citrus & Cream (Limited Edition) Review
I've been itching to try this new Limited Edition Häagen-Dazs ever since I saw it amongst all the new ice creams in Sainsbury's recently. There's not many citrusy ice creams around - the flavour is usually reserved for sorbet - so I was excited to see how it would work in an ice cream.
The description reads: "Haagen-Dazs has selected exquisite yuzu fruit from Japan, a sour hybrid mandarin and ichang papeda, and sweet oranges then mixed their juices to create a refreshing sauce that twists your indulgent ice cream". So this isn't just any ordinary citrus fruit!
Opening the lid, I found that the ice cream looked like regular vanilla Häagen-Dazs but with a pale yellow swirl running through it. It's not clearly visible in my photos unfortunately.
The ice cream tasted lovely; a mixture of both creamy and zingy. The yuzu flavour is subtle, not quite as tart as lemon and not quite as fruity as orange. It blended well with the vanilla ice cream, and overall made for a refreshing treat. I really enjoyed it and I think this is the perfect flavour for the Summer months.
RATING: 8 out of 10.
Price: £3 at Sainsbury's (special offer).
Allergens: Egg, dairy, corn.
